Anyone heard of him?

Anyone read his books?

Anyone else love his work as much as i do?!?!!

Ive read his vampire series and was so sad when they ended and im now on the latest book (9 i think) of the demonata series.

They are just the type of books you dont have to 'get into' you pick them up and right there on the first line you wana read the whole thing. Ive never been dissapointed by any of his work and am really not ever wanting the books to end but they have to unfortunately.

I would seriously recommend them to anyone who likes slight horror books (but not scary in the slightest).

I think they are actually meant for the younger teengers which possibly is why they are such easy reads. The story lines are just fantastic too.

I loved his 'Darren Shan' vampire series. I was (am still) addicted to them, they were virtually my life for years!

Have only read a few of his Demonata books though. I suppose I should try and get into them a bit more!

I've read book 1-8 of the Demonata series. They were all really good (except Demon Thief. That was only ok. Might have to read again). Waiting for book 9 to arrive. Hopefully tomorrow..
